Associate Professor Lee Kim Seng and his three final year project students were featured in the Straits Times for their aquaponics setup at the Eng Kong Cheng Soon community garden in Lorong Kismis. Aquaponics combines aquaculture, the raising of edible fish, with hydroponics, growing vegetables without soil. This hybrid setup by the students combines two of the three common methods of setting up an aquaponics system, allowing the students to grow a wider variety of plants. The system has also yielded about 6kg of vegetables, such as butterhead lettuce, spring onion and Chinese cabbage, in the past two months.
